My psp will power off by itself unless plugged in. how can i get it to keep power while not plugged in?

Sounds like a battery issue. If you have a spare battery, or can borrow a friend's, you can try putting that in to see if that fixes it.

Psp will not read disc , i switch umd drive with friends my umd laser works in his system , mine only spin and laser will not turn on. already reset system. showing 3.5 version.

It sounds like there is an issue with the contact that powers the laser. If this is the case there is nothing you can really do about it except for get a new console. Any repair you try and do would cost about as much as a brand new console. Sorry I couldn't give you better news.

I have a psp and i dont know if the psp is broken or is it my charger or battery please help!!!!!!! sony model psp-110 battery pack 3.6

Solution 1: Try to borrow from your friend psp charger and charge it if charging. this maybe the problem.

Solution 2. Try to borrow replace the battery if it will charge. This may be the problem.

Otherwise the problem would be the psp unit itself that you are using while at battery charging. Hence your are playing and moving, you have tendency to damage the charging port of your psp. This maybe the problem and need replacement of parts.

Playstation portable, psp, will not turn on, will not charge, charging light does not come on., like it's dead

The battery is dead need to purchase new battery or the battery is not accepting charge when you plug in your power cord. If you can borrow your friend's battery to check your psp. If still the same, the problem would be the motherboard itself and need for replacement or repair.

I have my psp plugged in to the power cord for over a day, still not charged and it wont turn on at all. why ?? please help!!!

Probably, either the battery or the charger is busted. Try borrowing a friend's PSP charger and plug it in. The power led of the PSP should turn orange when charging. If it still does not charge, you might need to replace the battery.

Why doesn't my psp multiplayer work? every time me and my friend try to play multi player against each other her psp doesn't detect my psp

You have to switch on the wlan to play multiplayer because it uses wlan to play the game or your psp's wlan is broken or your friends receiver is broken pal.

My psp will not turn on or chaage

Hi, firstly i would take out the battery and clean the brass connectors with a moist wipe and dry it afterwards, do the same with the connectors on the PSP, put it all back together and see if that works. Otherwise i think your battery has died completely, so if you have a friend with a working PSP you could borrow his battery to comfirm. A new battery can be bought on ebay for a few ££

Psp on/off switch broken

You can buy a power switch circuit board replacement part off of ebay for under $5 (typically shipped from China). Buying the circuit board is easier than buying only the switch, since it avoids having to do any soldering. The power switch board can easily be swapped out and a new one reattached by connecting a few connectors.
